Bug Description

Binary package hint: systemsettings-kde4

Using systemsettings in KDE 4 there is no way to add new users or manage passwords for existing users. I had to use adduser and passwd to do it from the command line. This would probably be a good feature to have for Intrepid Ibex.

There is indeed no way to configure users via the GUI on Kubuntu-KDE4 by default. You can install kde-guidance from kde 3 and use userconfig, or try kuser-kde4.

Logical thing would be to make kuser into a kcm shell while at the same time making it not suck so hard.

I think that jockey-kde should be also into System Settings.
Thank you.

It will soon be one year since this bug came out, and still there's no GUI for adding new users in Kubuntu Intrepid. Doesn't really anybody care about this?

There is kuser.
